You can also use the mini-taiji to divide your house into 9 grid based on the chart below and see which area of your living room or bed room has the auspicious energy and simply spend most of your time in that sector to take advantage of the good feng shui. Whether you are doing your sales call, business proposal or even getting your child to do well in examination, you can refer to the 2017 flying star chart and use the sector of energy that is auspicious to your advantage. Understand that feng shui has little to do with purchasing of feng shui objects but more of tapping to the energy by using that area and space often. The idea of using feng shui object is at best to exhaust the element (eg, Metal exhaust Earth). If you own a house, but not staying in the house, then the energy in that place will NOT affect you at all.
